Our program is designed to give students ample opportunities to develop confidence and leadership skills. With leadership training, challenging field study, digital awareness and offering leadership opportunities specific to their developmental ages, students are prepared for post secondary education and their future careers.
Urban Academy alumni represent impressive academic achievement, service-minded attitudes and a dynamic group of community-focussed young adults who are committed to using their skills and talents to contribute to society. Their leadership skills inside the classroom have extended into their communities and post secondary schools in a variety of ways.
As they mature, students take on greater responsibility both in school and in the broader community. The scope of the Urban Academy Leadership Program moves sequentially from school to community, country and the world. Students are encouraged to explore how personal choices, worldviews and actions can effect change. Leadership opportunities ranging from leading school houses, intramurals, school events and leadership conferences province wide enable students to develop the skills that will lead them well into the future.
